Jonah was a prophet (minor)

(Leland Bryant Ross)

Jonah was a prophet (minor), patriotic, proud, absurd,
till creation's grand Designer sent to him his holy word:
Go to Nineveh / preach destruction there —
They have roused my righteous ire!
Thou'lt know how to tell / them of hottest hell,
Teach them of brimstone, and evoke fear of fire!"

Jonah, frankly, did not relish preaching to Assyria's hordes;
truth to tell, a prospect hellish seemed this summons of the LORD’S.
"Jonah, boy," said he, / "This job's not for me.
Let's take off and see the earth,
Sail the seven seas, / smell the salty breeze,
Hitchhike to Joppa and engage me a berth!"

Sorry I don't have a clickable MIDI of Austria; it's the tune variously known as "Deutschland über alles" or "Glorious things of thee are spoken"
